Need to pair the phone. Touch screen works great. Need to try out the remote. Plays CDs. Need to see what a DVD Movie looks like now that I have complete wiring installed.

Once the backup camera is installed....I'll need another project/mod to procrastinate on!

Phone is paired. Places/Receives calls. Streams music.



Plays DVD videos with the Parking Brake engaged as advertised! Not that I'm interested in watching a DVD video on that 5" screen!



Plays CDs no problem.

Better view of the display via my Camera Phone This is the Radio screen:

Audio on the phone called from the Head Unit is very good quality. The built-in microphone appears to work well. Need to place/receive calls while on the road to evaluate how "Road Noise" affects things.

Also need to load up a USB stick with music and try out the built in USB port for music.

Going to try and install the Kicker door speakers this weekend. OEM speakers sound better with the Boss Audio radio thanks to the 10 band equalizer. The Kickers should step that up a notch!

Seems that BOSS radio has all the modern features. Not a bad unit.

Get those speakers in - that will be a BIG improvement.

Just under $400 all-in for the NAV radio upgrade. That includes the New Boss Audio NAV Radio, New PAC OEM Wiring Harness/Module, Used Radio Surround Bezel and New Radio Bezel Kit for filling in the opening.

Less money than buying one of the Expensive Kenwood or Pioneer NAV units alone!

And the used Radio Bezel came with the HVAC controls!

Get those speakers installed today - should be a nice change on the upcoming drive.

I bought a PAC LOC adapter for the 2014 Charger - keeping the 8.4 Uconnect factory radio and aux inputs - that will be installed in a few months. I hope it works well.

I've only changed the 3.5" speakers in the dash on the Charger and that made a huge difference. Granted I sealed them off as best as I could.

You should be very pleased with this upgrade.

Kicking It! At least on the front doors. A nice little improvement in sound. Not earth shattering but it will be once I get my 12" thub in!

Taking the door panels off was easy peasy! Remove 3 phillips screws and lift the panel off the hooks. Door speakers sit in their own cylindrical housings. Sealed up nicely. The speaker adapter plates fit perfectly. Metra wire harnesses were plug in....no cutting splicing.

Old


New


Original speaker on the left. Kicker on the right. Non-Infinity, Non-Amplified audio system. Probably just above a Base Intrepid SE for quality on the originals.


Kicker on the top. OEM original on the bottom.

Might look into putting in a set of component speakers. I believe I have a set laying around new. Use Components in the Front doors and the Kickers in the Rear doors.

Need to dig out my Amp wiring kit, PAC LOC and 12" Infinity Thub for Phase 2.1 of the Audio Upgrade.

Was going to replace the Fog Lights and Front Air Dam but ran into a snag on part of that. I thought I could get access to the Fog Light mounts from behind the bumper and pull them out the front. No Go. The bumper fascia opening is smaller than the fog light. FSM says the fascia needs to be removed and I was hoping to avoid that. Looks like I might be able to replace the air dam without removing the fascia but might as well wait and do both the fog lights and air dam at one time when I remove the bumper fascia,

Took the speaker install pictures with my cell phone. Found the phone pairs automatically with the Boss Audio NAV radio without any intervention. Nice. Need to see if it'll play nice with two cell phones paired to it at the same time and both in the vehicle at the same time.
